Mixed Media Monday

Hey everyone, Kim here. I'm back today sharing my project I made with the February mixed media kit. If you didn't know, our mixed media kits always come with a project so you can start playing with your mediums as soon as you open the box. 

Here is the February kit:

Here is what I created with the kit:

I had so much fun creating this project. The frame was cut specifically for Tres Jolie and is only available in our kit.

How about some close-ups?

Instead of using a picture for the center of the heart, I turned it into a shaker. I added some sequins from the February cards, tags and more kit. I also used some blush micro beads from the January 2021 mixed media kit and some gold glass glitter. The resin piece and leaves are from my stash. 
Here I used some of the art stones from the January 2021 mixed media kit. That's the purpose of this kit, to build your mediums stash, so you can use it on other projects. I painted the base white before I used the crackle medium and then the pink paint. You can see some of the white peeking thru the cracks. 

This resin piece is also from my stash. Here you can see the gold alloy ink that I used. I put a dropper full on the frame and with a damp paint brush, smeared it randomly on the frame. I like the streaks that it made. All the flowers used are from the kit.

Here is the base. After I got it painted and crackled the way I wanted, I used the same technique with the alloy inks. Then I took some water downed paint and gave it a slight white wash. I added more flowers and art stones. I also took some of the alloy ink on my finger and ran it all around the edges.

I really like how my project turned out. Now it's ready to be given as a gift or to sit on my shelf along with some of my other favorite projects. Did you get this kit? If so, show us your project in our Facebook Cafe. If not, you better head on over to the store and grab one. There are only a couple left before they are sold out. 

Don't forget the designers will be revealing the rest of their projects on the Tres Jolie blog all month long. Make sure you join us for tons of inspiration, tips, tricks and video and photo tutorials. Also make sure you check out our newest products for sale.
